    Luckily for them they're paid to do it and it is their job. So they will have the time to go through every option and build pro/cons on deciding on a purchase.

    Clubs with less do more so yes I think the fans are entitled to question the failures and the need to get people at the club making more right decisions.

    I know Randall said they giving Hughton more responsibility but that is a slight worry too. Prefer he gets the right support first and foremost and there is a shared strategy.

    My view is that the club needs to decide firmly that it is adopting the old-school, traditional British managerial method under Hughton. Use the analytical tools that are now available by all means (bringing in a recognised expert at reading the results, George Syrianos, is encouraging), but allow Chris to have the absolute final say.

    That said, I am an admirer of the continental DoF/head-coach structure, but not the half-arsed way we approached it.

    They need to fully commit to one or the other, that's for sure. We don't usually back the manager as much as we perhaps should in the traditional model, and our attempt at the continental DOF/ head coach model was incredibly poorly executed.

    Ultimately, the key to success (whatever path we take going forwards) is employing the right people in those influential positions and trusting them to do their jobs without interference.

    Good points chaps but I fear the debate will be on the LTLF agenda in 2041. (Me n Oats ulbi dust)

    Still hold out misguided hope for next season though !

    There seems some uncertainty about the dates of the opening and 'slamming shut' of the transfer window this year. Does anyone know officially when it is (or rather how many days we have to trawl through rumours until it all happens on the last day)?

    Anthony Elanga starting for Man United this evening, I wondered if he might be on our radar for a loan next season.

    I'd like to think that, after the success of James Garner's loan here, we can build some sort of relationship with United and get a decent loan or two out of them. Using the loan market is definitely something we need to get better at to succeed IMO.

    If we don't even enquire we'll have dropped a right elanga.

    I agree Ash, although whilst Rooney remains at Derby we might be competing with them for any more young talent at Old Trafford.

    I even saw a couple of comments on the 'shaggers forum speculating that Rooney might even be able to nab Garner from under our nose if Man Utd are agreeable to him continuing in the Championship next season. I can't see it myself, but who knows how much influence Rooney might still have there?

    I don't think Derby will be competing for any player worth their salt in their current financial situation. United will still want substantial loan fees and wage contributions as well as finding their players the best club for their development. Rooney might be a decisive factor if they had money and a squad that wasn't terrible (as was the case with Lampard when he was at Derby), but as they are at the moment they will be restricted to cheap loans and low wage free transfers IMO.

    Well our current loan strategy seems to mainly involve dragging a cart up and down the streets, ringing a bell and yelling "Bring out your dead". So anything is an improvement from there.

    The clusterfuck that Rooney has overseen at Derby since he was made manager ought to be ringing alarm bells like klaxons with talented young players and agents, so I'm not worried about them stealing a march on us on that front.
    Why on earth the football world continues to ignore history and appoint great ex players into management roles is beyond me. I mean look at Chelsea-the difference between Lampard and Tuchel is verging on embarrassing. Rooney looks to me to be a deadman walking-if the sheep have any sense they will get rid of him now, if they don't it will be Christmas...

    Isn't that the same strategy for signing permanent players too?

    I quite like Sam Field, struggled to get a run at WBA but seems to have done well at QPR. Definitely a 'Warbs' type of player.

    How on earth are they putting together a deal for Austin with their finances?

    If his wage demands are lower, I wouldn’t mind Forest getting involved in that.

    Many ways like Forest backing players because of name and experience and backfiring massively.

    Set to be released
    Tommy Rowe (33), Jack Hunt (31), Jamie Paterson (30), Nathan Baker (30), Henri Lansbury (31), Adrian Mariappa (35), Famara Diedhiou (29)

    *As of last night they undecided on Liam Walsh

    On top of Bakinson & Semenyo they did start to introduce their own academy talent at the end of the season.

    Poor old Henri, he‘ll have to retire to the golf course full-time now.

    Yes, very similar to us in many ways. Agents of declining footballers must love clubs like us and Bristol City.

    I shudder to think how much money Henri has made, given all his transfers.
    It’s an object lesson in how out of control player remuneration has got when a deeply average player can clear up
    Like that...

    I wouldn't be too worried about that - Wayne Rooney wouldn't know the good ones if they came up and punched him in the eye

    I would say - Wayne you choose first and then we know which ones to avoid

    I remember reading somewhere that Lansbury was on £40k per week at Villa, which then increased when they got promoted. He's spent years at Villa earning eye watering sums of money for not playing football. Absolute madness.

    Really struggling to choose who the best option for CF is.

    Just reading up on the players and then looking at stats and some clips there probably is a case of many pros and many cons for each.

    I'm starting to lean to Humphrys but then he didn't play as much as Yates and Charles last season. Probably has a better pedigree too.

    We probably need a couple of strikers to be honest, given that I expect Taylor to leave (leaving only Grabban left at the club with no academy player seemingly ready to make the step up).
